GIMME DANGER

Acclaimed filmmaker Jim Jarmusch, chronicles the story of The Stooges, one of the greatest rock-n-roll bands of all time.

Emerging from Ann Arbor Michigan amidst a countercultural revolution, The Stooges’ powerful and aggressive style of rock-n-roll blew a crater in the musical landscape of the late 1960s. Assaulting audiences with a blend of rock, blues, R&B, and free jazz, the band planted the seeds for what would be called punk and alternative rock in the decades that followed.

Gimme Danger presents the context of the Stooges emergence musically, culturally, politically, historically, and relates their adventures and misadventures while charting their inspirations and the reasons behind their initial commercial challenges, as well as their long-lasting legacy.  

Date: From FRI 18 NOV 2016. Tickets: here

 

THE MUSIC OF STRANGERS

Over the past 16 years, an extraordinary group of musicians has come together to celebrate the universal power of music. Named for the ancient trade route linking Asia, Africa and Europe, The Silk Road Ensemble, an international collective created by world famous cellist Yo-Yo Ma, exemplifies music’s ability to blur geographical boundaries, blend disparate cultures and inspire hope for both artists and audiences.

Blending performance footage, personal interviews and archival film, Oscar-winning director Morgan Neville (Best of Enemies, 20 Feet From Stardom) focuses on the journeys of a small group of Silk Road Ensemble mainstays from across the globe to create an intensely personal chronicle of passion, talent and sacrifice. Through these moving individual stories, the film paints a vivid portrait of a bold musical experiment and a global search for the ties that bind.

Don't miss an exclusive Q&A via Skype with Oscar winning filmmaker Morgan Neville following the screening on Friday 18 November at 18:30, hosted by Carol Nahra.

Date:  From FRI 18 NOV 2016. Tickets: here

 

ONE MORE TIME WITH FEELING - ENCORE SCREENING

Andrew Dominik’s “One More Time with Feeling” is a remarkable black-and-white documentary about the creation of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds album “Skeleton Tree”.

Originally a performance based concept, the film evolved into something much more significant as Dominik delved into the tragic backdrop of the writing and recording of the album. Interwoven throughout the Bad Seeds’ filmed performance of the new album are interviews and footage shot by Dominik.  The result is stark, fragile and raw, and a true testament to an artist trying to find his way through the darkness.

This extraordinary and now widely lauded film premiered at the Venice Film festival on September 5, followed by screenings on September 8 in 950 cinemas across 30 countries.  

Already seen by more than 125,000 people on one day  -  many at sold out screenings -  the phenomenal response globally sees One More Time with Feeling return to cinemas for one more run on December 1.

Date: THU 1 DECEMBER 2016. Tickets: here
